Lawctopus Law School is inviting enrollments for its online self-paced certificate course on ‘Drafting a Legal Notice’.
About this Course
Human conflicts are inevitable, and there may be many occasions when a person may contemplate taking legal action against another person/entity because of such conflicts. This is where a legal notice comes into the picture.
A legal notice in our country marks the start of legal proceedings. It is a formal written communication between parties that consists of the facts, cause of action, and legal reasoning for making any claim.
A legal notice is how the sender notifies the recipient about his/her/their intention of undertaking legal proceedings against the latter.
